South Shields -Sunderland

Have you ever been in a Hotel or Inn where you were all on your own, no one else around, just you. It’s very uncanny and not normal is it? It is what I experienced this morning. Yesterday I ordered breakfast to have this morning at 8.30. But when I come down this morning, there’ s nobody there, anywhere. Not in the restaurant (which is locked), not in the bar, not in the lobby.

Back on track

I must be crazy, going on a coastal walk on my own, in the middle of winter. The freezing, cold wind blowing straight through me (which I love actually), the short hours of daylight are not ideal. Truth is, I just have to do this. January is dragging me down (again), even before it has properly started, on new years eve. Starting a new year is like staring into a black hole. I need a change of scenery, need to be moving, in nature, away from too much comfort, meet challenges, new places and people.
